Rudyard Kipling - Mowgli's Brothers

Author of famous stories like The Jungle Book and Just So Stories. Here's a poem from the original Jungle Book, where you'll also find the classic story of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi.

Mowgli's Brothers

Now Chil the Kite brings home the night
That Mang the Bat sets free,
The herds are shut in byre and hut,
For loosed till dawn are we.
This is the hour of pride and power,
Talon and tush and claw.
Oh, hear the call! Good hunting all
That keep the Jungle Law!
